Trent Reznor and Karen O Collaborate on Led Zeppelin Cover for 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'
Published May 27, 2011Back in January, we found out that Trent Reznor would be teaming up once again with Atticus Ross to produce the score for David Fincher's upcoming American remake of thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The pair had previously worked together on the Oscar-winning score to The Social Network. At the time, we learned that this new project would focus less on electronics and work more with cellos and strings. It turns out it includes a hat-tip to rock gods as well, as reportedly evidenced by an early trailer for the flick.
According to some detective work and comments gathering by The Playlist, a red-band trailer for the film has already been screened in Sweden and France, and it features a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" as performed by Reznor, with Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O handling vocals.
UPDATE: Pitchfork has now confirmed with Yeah Yeah Yeahs management that Karen O and Reznor have indeed tackled the Zeppelin song for the film. Nice!
According to one commenter on IMDB, "The music is a cover of the 'Immigrant Song' done specifically for the movie by Trent Reznor with vocals by Karen O," while others relayed the same info about the supposed cover's inclusion in the trailer.
While we have yet to see the trailer in North America, an all-ages approved green-band version of the teaser is expected to hit theatres June 2.
Little else has popped up as far as info on the soundtrack goes, but maybe we should all make our way down to the cinema next Thursday to get the first taste of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
UPDATE: Below, you can see the trailer featuring the joint Reznor and O track.
